KATHMANDU, Nepal- The Singhaleela National Park spanning Nepal-India border has now opened for visitors after three months of closure.
Citing breeding season of the rare red panda, the park was closed for the visitors for three months since June 15.
The park administration stated that restriction on visiting the park imposed from June 15 has been lifted for visitors beginning September 15.
Located at Singhaleela Ridge at an altitude of more than 7000 feet above sea level, the park had banned the entry of visitors on the trekking route inside the park from Tamling area in Ilam to Phalot area in Panchthar district of eastern Nepal.
In the meantime, India has constructed trekking route along the Nepal-India border area from Manebhanjyang of Pashupatinagar leading to the Kanchanjunga Base Camp for the facilitation of the domestic and international tourists.
The park is a camper’s delight as it is largely free of vicious animals and snakes, making it the most popular family camping destination in the eastern Himalaya.
